petaoable outcome might bo expected short

the military officials not to furnUli nny Infor
mation about Philippine affairs to the news
paper, dotftlls ot tho disquieting occurrences
are not obtainable. The anxiety ot tho Ad

Is almost entirely confined to tho conditions

further than Gen. Otis In declining to furnish
news of a routine oharaotor contained In the
official despatches torn Manila.
Tho fqrbcarlng attitude maintained by the
American troops toward tho Filipino forces Is
in accordance with Instructions from Wash

can noeompllah much more In the way of end

of consideration and klndneas.tovvaid thoIFlll

bing to the turbulont clement, although It le
admitted that the latter course would doubt

Administration, and he has been directed to
confer frequently with Admiral Dewey. In

The cruiser Cormoran. which had boenordorod
to Samoa, will bo replaced by the litis, which
has orders to sail from Kiel. The correspon
dent quotes from n prlvato Gorman source tho
following statement :
"All forolgn Interference with tho election ot
n king has been opposed by tho Ger
mans, whorens tho Amorlcnn Chlof Jus
tlco, Mr. Chambors. supported by tho
British and American representatives,
trlod to act in favor of Mallotoa and
Tatnasoso. IIo wns frustrated by tho numeri
cal suporloilty of Matanfa's adherents. When
tho Gorman Consul met tho Consuls of
Great Brltnln nnd tho United Statos ho
declared that ho could seo no reason
for recognizing Mnlloloa or Tnmasceo, nnd
that ho could therefoiedo nothing for thom
nor opposo Mataafa's troops. Tho Lnglisli and
American Consuls protestod against this stand.
" Meanwhile, the fight had begun, Malloton's
and Tnmnsoso'a men mustorlng about i!,000.
whllo Jiataafas woro mueii moro numerous.
Tho light lasted soveral days, and moro
than a hundred mon on both sides wore
killed. At last tho ndhercnts of the two
newly clectod kings sought refngo in tho
mountains, while the kings themsolves nnd
tholr leading chieftains fled to tho Brit
ish ironclad Torpolso. Mnlaafa was mas
tor of tliA plaeo Dr. R.iflel. tho Gor
man President ot tho Municipal Council.,
nnd Hon Rose, tho German Consul, recognised
Mataafa as King until further notice, stating at
the samo timo that thoy would hence
forth act as public authorities. Tho eom
mandor of tho Porpoise was Informed of
the fact that Mnllctoa and Tnmaseso
would bo nrrestod when they landed. Tlio
Chief Justlco was monntimo reinstated in ofllco
hy a British escort, but Mataafa Is blaster of
tho Islands ns far as tho inhabitants are con
cerned. The British and United States Con
suls have yielded nnd recognlred Mataafa."
A despatch to tho Timei from Ilorlln says
that tho recnidescenco of tho Samoan question
has exercised a ory appreciable Influence
on tho nttltudo of Gorman opinion toward
foielgn affairs generally, not that this par
ticular question is of such grave concern to
Germany ascertain journnls endeavor to mako
it appear. Ono organ of tho Colonial party
goes so far ns to inslnuato that Lng
lnnd and tho United States do not tako
tho Incident of civil war in tho Islands
seriously because thoy havo comparatively few
commercial Intorosts at stake, whllo a sixth of
tho Samoan enterprises are in Gorman hands
Bo tills as it may, thore aro good reasons for
believing that tho Gorman Government re
gards certain other objects as of far
moro Importance than even German com
mercial Interests In Samoa, nnd that
among theso objects is tho maintenanco of
cordial relations witli tho United States and

assigned to this duty by Gen. Sliaftor. Gen.

with Gen Sliaftcr. In addition to this ho says
ho had other duties to perform. Only ono mnn,
four mules and two horses woro lost during

wonderful result with puch a large expedition
Gen. Ludlow denies Gen. Miles's statcmont
